I've rented the 1/8 th mi. track in Mooresville, N.C. on January 21 st . Dyno will be up and running by 9:00 a.m. ($40.00 ) The track will run from 12:00 to 3:00 p.m. (longer if we need to) Entry will be $15 to $20 ??(according to turn-out). No payouts, just-4-fun.(grudge match's, etc.) Any questions, call me @ 704-791-0268. Hope to see ya there, Ed. BTW, concession stand will NOT be open. Also, it would help me plan if I knew how many to expect, so let me hear from you:) !

hey Ed I don't know if you remember me. we had a few phone conversations a few months ago about my 6.0 I wanted to get rid of for either a 7.3 or a D,max. well I bought a LBZ last Saturday, & glad to see you got rained out. so I will see if I can come to Mooresville. ca I bring one of my cars to run also?

We will have a few street cars to keep things interesting!:D

See-ya there, Ed.

BTW, I do have a back-up INDOOR location for the dyno if we get rained out again.(bout' 15 min. from the track.)

EDD!!

Hey man I will try to make it and see if I can con a few more into coming. I wouldn't mind runing my truck again to see what she will do, plus I need a better video of my dyno pull from Rockingham so I might have to cough up the 50.00 for some more low numbers. Also this is off topic but a guy here in Sanford is in the process of building a sled pulling track that will be runing the first Sunday of every month. We still need to find a sled though.
